Where The Wild Things Are
Thursday, June 26, 2008
OK so one of my very dear friends is getting married in about a month. After a conversation with my mother this morning on the way to work, it was decided I need a make over. There are several things that she mentioned and was pretty adament about me doing, ie hair removal, new clothes, make-up. The truly funny part is that MW informed me yesterday that she would be setting me up on blind dates. I laughed... and laughed harder when I thought about it later when I was alone.
She is very nice and helps me out a lot, but I couldn't help but feel a little like singing "...matchmaker matchmaker make me a match..." however having the robin williams version so engrained in my brain as opposed to the fiddler version, I immediately thought of this scene from Mrs. Doubtfire. This was the only one I could find with the whole segment it starts at 1:06 and goes to about 4:45. Enjoy!
Why is it that when I write about something serious and weighty I feel guilty about it? Like I'm ruining someone else's good time?
Yes I like to laugh, but there are some times where things just aren't funny.
I love to laugh! and with that in mind...
I have a very strong emotional reaction to such things. Not that I've had the misfortune to experience such heinous violations, but none the less it still induces physical illness in me. Anyway I'm getting off track here.
What is cruel and unusual? Life without parole or having to live through a horribly traumatic experience that you truly never fully recover from, and most likely will be haunted by the memory of for the rest of your life?

The day I opened for business on this grand invention of Father Al's: Teh Internets. Translation: My blog was founded one year ago.
Picture it! 2007!
It was a warm June day, but you couldn't tell it from the thermostat setting.
I was wearing--
never mind what I was wearing. In my daily correspondence con GM she asked if I was busy. She told me to read this.
I didn't get drawn in right away, but I did peruse a little here and there.
Fast forward a few weeks and my sister sent me a link to the infamous post.
From there I was pretty much hooked. It's been an interesting year with blogging and discovering uncharted territory. I've had some bizarre themes that I've been through including blogging about my mid-afternoon sweet tooth,
and the hopscotch down memory lane leading up to my birthday.
But let's face it, who could forget David Bowie in a codpiece?
I can't really say that I've grown a lot or learned a lot except that the best way to tell a story is with visual aids. I can't even say that I've shared things of a truly profound nature. I have however read about many incidences where my fellow bloggy friends did made it through such things as this and that is why I keep coming back. Thank you for sharing your stories!
PS I still have something of a blogging inferiority complex.

It actually is quite the feat since I have to be here at 6 am. That is correct I rolled in the door at 5:55 am. That's disgusting. But hey it makes me happy. Mostly because when I am the first one in in the mornings I enjoy the quiet solitude and the fact that the lights aren't on yet, so the only light is the sun in the window.
In five minutes time I was able to get to my Monday morning assignments quite quickly and actually they were out to print before anyone else on my team showed up. Woohoo!
I like my coworkers, but I also prefer to have quiet time. Go figure.
In Other News...
I only used a half a tank of gas last week! This includes four round trips to work, saturday errands, church, and even a little random running around. To celebrate...I am filling up my tank this afternoon... I must be glutton for punishment...*knock on wood*
Too late, I already need a new headgasket. I am accepting donations.

Device was large enough to harm a person if it went off, Conn. cops say
The Associated Press
updated 6:05 a.m. MT, Tues., June. 10, 2008
SIMSBURY, Conn. - Authorities in Connecticut are wondering who stuffed a raw roasting chicken with a pipe bomb and left it on a roadside.
Simsbury police Capt. Matthew Catania says a motorist noticed the chicken Monday morning. He says the bomb was large enough to harm a person if it went off.
The road was closed while the Hartford Police Department's bomb squad came and blew up the chicken. I want this job
Nobody was injured. No arrests had been made Monday night.
Now how many of you have played R0ck B@nd?
Now how many of you have played both?
Which do you like better and why?
Do you ever find yourself humming these songs to yourself while you "strum/drum/sing" in your mind?
Do you hear songs on the radio and the only reason they are familiar to you is because you've played them on the games?
IS IT JUST ME? I FEEL LIKE I'M ON CRAZY PILLS HERE PEOPLE!!!!

Not wanting to have to wait all day until I could eat something I scheduled my appointment for the earliest slot available on the last day, when I knew I wouldn't be as busy.
Since it was first thing, I went dressed for the ocassion.
I had packed a bag with clothes to change into after the
I knew I wasn't as healthy as last year, but it's amazing what you can will yourself to do.
For example, when I was in my Freshman year in college I was probably at one of my most out of shape and unhealthy weights ev.er. I still managed to climb Table Rock in the Tetons. I think I take after my Grandma in that rite. Meaning the I'll do whatever I want and don't tell me differently.
But I digress.
After it was over and I was looking forward to changing out of my gym clothes, I realized to my horror that I forgot to pack a brassiere.
SO off to the closest store to obtain the necessary evil. When I first walked in I saw this
and it made me smile right back!
